MMMMMMMMMM, doesn't that look tasty???? When I think of summer time, I think of the times we made homemade ice cream at my grandparents, visiting our fav dairy for fresh ice cream (Tofts Dairy) after a long day on the lake. They have THE BEST "Strawberry Strikeout" ice cream made with Slider strawberry fudge curving through cream cheese ice cream sinking with strawberry filled surprises for a perfect pitch combination. ohhhhhhhhhhhhh, yeah!

Anyways, here is my card creation for the challenge. This is a 5x5 card with rounded corners, layers of brown and pink BAZZILL cardstock, ice cream background paper is available in a previous post, pink 2-sided silky ribbon, and a blingy brad. The ice cream come is hand cut from the same cardstock as the base layers, stamped with mini-hearts from a Heidi Swapp clear stamps tag set, and dusted with star dust stickles for just a bit of ice crystals to gleam all over! Also, for added texture, I cuttlebugg'ed the ice cream scoop with the Swiss Dots dry embossing folder.

I will also be posting the "How Sweet" DigiPhrase as soon as I get it formatted for ya. For now, grab a spoon, and enjoy the sweet creamy coolness!
